Upgrade from Network Advisor 14.2.1 to 14.3.1

  • 1.  Upgrade from Network Advisor 14.2.1 to 14.3.1

    Posted 10-23-2017 01:44 PM

    I have performed several successful updates to NA but the last one says "Format not supported" when the copy data and settings wizard tries to run.  Is there another step between these 2 versions?

     

    Thanks

    BNA Upgrade from 14.2.1 to 14.3.1 is supported and work

     

    I kow such error message by Cross-Flower Upgrade

     

    example:

     

    14.2.1 or preview release was installed with IBM NA image and you try to upgrade to 14.3.1 with another Image HP, EMC or Brocade Image or vice-versa

    Not sure what is going on.  I was at 12.4.4 and downloaded 14.0.3, 14.2.1 and 14.3.1 from Brocade.  The first 2 installs and migrations completed with no problem.  14.2.1 is up and running with no issues but I would like to go ahead and upgrade to 14.3.1 while I am at it.

    Notice that for 14.3.1

     

    - does not support upgrade from IP versions. Please see 14.3.1 release notes page 20. "Note 7: IP only installation is not supported with 14.3.1"

     

    Further, error message seen "Format not supported" usually occurs if the data to be migrated is not in a format acceptable for migration. Request customer if folder location is correct and if the contents are from BNA backup or the original 14.2.x install location.

    This is IP Only, that must be the issue.  Is upgrade to 14.3.0 supported for IP Only?

     

    Thanks

    i'm trying to upgrade from 14.2.1 to 14.3.1, which should be supported. BNA is running on a RHEL 7.3 virtual machine. First steps seem to work but after the clients/server get started in the upgrade process it always ends up in a rollback. Is there soemthing to check ? i already opend a case but uploading the migrations failure support save takes time ..

    @Storage Team

     

    when you say "RHEL 7.3 virtual machine", is the VM installed on Local Harddisk ?

     

    I ask because accord RN Installation on Network Mounted Driver is not supported.

     

    Not sure if this restriction apply for Linux or Windows only.

    the VM is running in ESXi 6.0. Disk are SAN attached Disk from HDS G1000 System. So, the disks are somehow "network mounted" to the esx server but for the VM they shopuld look like local disks..

    Just a short update since the issue is solved and probably is interesting for others.

     

    In the Migration_Failure_Supportsave inside the file migrateschema.log:

     

    .  Cause: org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: ERROR: duplicate key value violates unique constraint "ak_key_dw_title"
      Detail: Key (title)=(Top Flows) already exists.

     

    So, the problem was that i defined a widget in the past and Named it Top Flows. The migration will fail when attemping to copy the existing widget to the new installation of the BNA due to the dublicate name.

     

    So you have to rename oder delet your widget and then themigration will work.

    @netadmin,

     

    14.2.1 is recommended  (Target Path) release for IP (NetIron, FastIron, ADX, etc) and for NOS and for SAN (today)/

     

    14.3.1 is Target Path for AMP (SAN + AMP)

     

    Notice that 14.3.0 that no limitation for upgrade (IP only) per the release notes, so it might work. But

     

    • Brocade Network Advisor 14.3.0 is intended for use in environments that have the Brocade Analytics Monitoring Platform deployed and operating with Brocade AMP OS v2.1.0 or later.
